Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Canyon Hat First trip to the Southwest national parks and warned to protect myself against the sun and heat.This hat fit the job perfectly! It was easy to fold into my backpack when not in use. Did not feel overly hot or sweaty wearing it. The special band that wraps around the inside rim of hat keeps it securely on your head without feeling too tight and the thin chin strap kept it from flying away when the canyon breezes blew too strong. I have fallen in love with our national parks and hope to see more in the near future and you can bet this hat will accompany me wherever I go. Be sure to try them on for the right size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe good for hiking Well made but poorly designed. The brim only has a couple of lines of stitching and it is very floppy, especially when wet. When encountering a good breeze, such as on the beach or out on a river, the brim either flops up or down. When it flops up it provides no shade and when it flops down it blocks your vision. My kids each got the REI brand hats of the same style and they are much better all around. I would not buy this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hot weather I bought this for backpacking and camping in hot weather and it has been fantastic. I bought the Fossil color. The mesh around most of the hat definitely helps keep you cool. I also like that the brim is slightly wider than most bucket hats. But it is not too wide so it doesn't hit your backpack while hiking. It does roll up nicely to store in your pack when not needed and is very light. A strong wind will blow the brim up or down sometimes because it is lightweight. But that is kind of the point for me with this hat, to protect from sun while being as light as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good choice I bought this for a family trip to Florida. Since I have a rather small head I searched for one with adjustment. It does adjust well but when snugged small enough for me the brim takes on a wavy appearance. Unfortunately it makes a major dip in the front which I find a bit annoying for casual/travel wear. It folds and rolls well for packing and is lightweight so overall a good purchase. The wide brim does provide good shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hat. Lightweight, cool, sun protection I've had this hat for over a year now, and it's travelled with me to Yosemite several times, Kern River, Seattle, Disneyland and more. It provides excellent sun protection, and keeps your dome cool, thanks to the generous venting around the crown. It's super lightweight, packable, and dries out quick after getting wet. This is the best outdoor hat I've ever owned. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Hat Good hat for the money. Cool and breathable in the AZ summer heat. I usually wear an XL hat and the typical X/XL size doesn't work for me. I was happy to find that this hat does. It's comfortable, light weight and not constricting. My only negative is that the brim tends to move a lot in windy conditions. Either flipped up or worse, flipped down over your eyes! Other than that, it's comfortable and washes up easily. Very pleased overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought two! I bought a Columbia Bora Bora Booney II from my local REI store just before going to Africa. Was great! Kept sun off my white neck and ears. Very lightweight. Very packable, in suitcase or daypack. Vented way better than anything I've owned; cannot conceive of better. When our son--a Peace Corps Volunteer--the reason for the trip--complained that his similar sun hat, after 1.5 years of everyhour everyday wear in small-town Africa, was limp and floppy, I told him I would bequeath him mine at the end of our trip. He was SO happy! Now Stateside, I just bought another for me. Love it! And recommend it for all travelers to the sunniest countries, or who walk in American Southwest or Midwest. With our PCV returning soon, we will see how well the hat held up in the harshest of conditions. I think it was fine at keeping a light rain off my head. Wide enough, I didn't bother getting out my jacket. The chinstrap does indeed keep it on your head in the wind, such as on a boat. This is the ONLY one-size-fits-all hat that has EVER fit my head. All baseball caps are way too small for me. On this hat, I have the drawstring all the way out, but it does fit me well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Cool comfortable hat I have had mine for a couple of years, I love it. Whether hiking in the Sierras or So CA Trails it keeps my head cool with plenty of ventilation. I use it while working on trail maintenance, backpacking and hiking. The only drawback is that I would like the brim to be a little larger.

Does the brim have foam in it?

Asked by: Outdoor lover
No, this is a completely fabric hat with a fabric layered, stitched brim.
